Turning Toy Cars into Combat Vehicles for Gaslands

Turning toy cars into vehicular mayhem! It's what Gaslands  is all about. We started with a set of Desert-themed Matchbox® cars 

First, we roughed them up with a Dremel. They are a little too shiny and new to start... channel your inner road warrior.

Second, we added some weapons made using plasticard. Cut it with a hobby knife or scissors and glue the pieces onto the vehicles.

Third, prime and base coat with primary color. We use (and sell!) Army Painter paint and washes.

Fourth, grunge painting, dry brushing with black and silver.

Fifth, a thin wash of rust and dark shade to deepen the details and add some age to them.

Lastly, the cars are highlighted, detailed, touched up and dull coated.

@Alan – The weapons are just leftover parts from other projects and even some bits of sprue.

What a great result – I’m off to rummage through the matchbox pile and can see my 10-year-old loving this as well.
